As a book lover, one of my biggest dreams is to have a beautiful nook of my own.
That will be the place I enjoy my bookish adventures in complete peace and quietness.
I currently live in a tiny apartment and the library and the park is still my favorite place to read. However, I’m saving as many pictures of reading nooks I find from the internet as possible. One day, I’m going to need the ideas and inspiration to build one for myself.
In this post, I would love to share with you 20 of my personal favorite reading nooks from Pinterest. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
1. Nook with a Cushy Papasan Chair
This reading corner is probably not that special – just a chair, some pillows, and a floor lamp next to a large window. What’s beautiful is how the simple items combine so nicely with each other in terms of color and style, and how those yellow leaves in the garden matches so perfectly with everything indoors.
2. Nook with a Sea View
3. Wooden Attic Nook
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to build a house large enough to accommodate this attic, but the arc design and the two sail-shaped bookshelves are definitely something I’m inspired to apply in my future nook.
4. Reading Hammock
5. Closet-style nook
6. Nook with Look to a Tree
A space full of light, books, and with a view to the greens. If you have some room next to a window, this is a practical nook to build.
7. Reading Room in the Wood
If peace and mindfulness is what you want while reading, this is the reading nook for you.
8. Cubicle in the Rose Garden
9. This Neat, Airy Indoor Nook
There seems to be no windows in this nook, and yet it still looks so bright and airy. The secret is in the simplistic design and paint color, and a small but efficient lamp.
10.Garden Reading Nook
Another garden reading nook that is full of natural light. I would be happily distracted by the bird singing and all the daydreaming!
11. Swinging Reading Nook
This will definitely take your reading experience to a higher level. I just wonder why the boy doesn’t look very happy.
12. Cozy Window Nook
Warm, cozy, and with a good view to the garden, this is another practical idea for small houses.
13. River View Nook
A small reading nook but full of light and with an awesome view to the river. I wouldn’t ask for more!
14. Attic Nook Looking out to Tops of Trees
You probably have figured out by now that I can never resist a reading spot with windows looking out to the greens.
15. Comfy Armchair Nook
When a garden is not available, adding some indoor plants into the reading corner can have a similar effect. Look at how a little plant brings so much liveliness to this cool-colored space!
16. Nook with Beach View
I love how the indoor decorations are in such harmony with the picturesque view outside. In reality though, my books are as colorful as a box of crayons, and the effect must not be the same.
17. Nook with Open Windows
Oh dear, I can spend days in this reading nook.
18. Reading Corner with Creative Book Shelf
This is a nook you can easily set up in a small apartment. The bookshelf and the floor lamp are definitely eye-catching. I would add a large cream rug to complete the look.
19. Room for Reading with your Companions
This will make a bookworm’s heaven.
20. Nook next to the Fireplace
This picture is my definition of a cozy reading nook. I’d turn on the heater and snuggle with my cat here all day and read and laugh and cry with my bookish characters.
